3-ingredient Jack Daniels fudge is the best (grown-up) dessert EVER! Filled with booze, minutes to make, delicious.
Jack Daniels fudge
Let me be clear. This Jack Daniels fudge is not chocolate fudge flavored with whiskey. This is a shot of whiskey delivered by fudge. These are strong. The alcohol is NOT cooked out. And it’s absolutely wonderful. Though I appreciate its history and complicated flavor, I’m not a fan of whiskey (thank you, college). But whiskey as fudge, that I can get behind.
Three ingredients, easy to make, delicious and boozy.
Be the party winner and bring 3-ingredient Jack Daniels fudge.
Since making this whiskey fudge, I’ve tried other liquors (tequila, rum, vodka, gin, Schnapp’s, and more) with great success, and other chocolates as well (white chocolate, milk chocolate, and more). FOR ALL BOOZY FUDGE RECIPES, CLICK HERE.

The basic boozy fudge recipe:
you will need:
- 1 cup liquor
- 2 cups (1 bag) chocolate chips
- 2 pounds confectioner’s sugar
what to do:
Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with parchment or wax paper. Crease the edges so the sides are also lined and you can later use the parchment paper to lift the fudge out of the pan.
Place the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 90 seconds at 70 percent power. Stir and continue to melt at 30 second, then 15 second, intervals just until melted, stirring well each time. When the chocolate is almost melted, stir well to let the residual heat completely melt the chocolate.
While the chocolate is melting, place the confectioner’s sugar in a large bowl. Whisk the liquor into the sugar. The mixture will look like icing.
When the chocolate is melted, quickly pour the chocolate into the sugar and liquor mixture and stir very well. Scrape the chocolate, liquor and sugar mixture into the prepared baking pan. Spread evenly.
Let set at room temperature or in the refrigerator at least an hour. Cut into squares.

Have you tried this with Fireball Whiskey? I have friends who love it and I think they would love fudge made with it. But I’m not sure if the flavors would work.
Hi Candace, I haven’t but I think it would work beautifully. So far I’ve tried it with whiskey, gin and rum. The gin surprised me the most. But they all were awesome. The taste of the liquor really comes through (strong). So I say go for it.
CAN use use white chocolate instead of milk chocolate chips?
Hi Tina, Yes! I’ve done this before.
Ken McBroom says
Great article. I grew up in Lynchburg tennessee just down the road from the distillery. I can still smell the sour mash when the wind was right. I will be trying this recipe. Thanks
What an incredible place to live! My husband would be very jealous to have a distillery down the road.
Janet Hazelmyer says
can you use pecans?
Hi Janet. Sure! It’s very versatile.
Do you recommend milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips?
Hi Victoria, Either one will work, but I prefer semi-sweet because it balances the confectioner’s sugar nicely. I don’t like my sweets too sweet.
This came out very crumbly. I hope it sets up so I can cut and serve. Flavor is good
